Nakamura is definitely a guy i wanted to see. They are starting to aquire some real depth in all their weightclasses. I am sick of seeing some of the mid to lower level fighters. I hope they get dropped down to the wec and we start seeing the pride aquisition to add some depth to the UFC.

This is great news! Nakamura is one of the best Japanese fighters. He brings it to every fight he's in. I think Lyoto is going to get out hustled on this. Nakamura by decision.

Nakamura will actually be able to beat Lyoto and end his evil reign of karate terror.

Glad he signed. Also, I don't remember him ever fighting below 205. I know he fought above his weight, but can't remember him fighting below i t.

Definitely an awesome fight, and a very intriguing match up. Nakamura can definitely take this one, his standup style can totally stalemate Machida's if he doesn't get frusrated by how evasive the guy is. And if he manages to manuver Machida into bad position where can put him against the cage and use his slight edge in grappling skill to put the fight on the ground, he could very well manage a decision win. But Machida is VERY wily, and don't really feel comfortable with betting against him on a match that's this close. For me this is a pick 'em fight and with Machida's career momentum and toolset I still have him pulling out a decision or a last half of fight TKO.

Nakamura is gonna gonna take the entire fight to "Ryoto". Only way Kazuhiro Nakumura loses is if Machida lands a bomb counter.

Kuzahiro has a good chin though, it will need to be a proper cannon of a shot if its gonna put him out. Personally I think Nakamura has got this one, he is a total power house, I expect to see him just push Machida into the cage and then proceed to pummel it out of him.

Nakamura by 3rd round tko.
